Runway Idol is set to hold its third annual charity fashion show in front of 300 people at Hillsborough Stadium on September 24 this year, and will be raising money for Sheffield MIND and the UK Sepsis Trust.

Organiser James Clarke says he is on the hunt for 20 models, 10 male and 10 female, and is encouraging anyone who wants to strut down a catwalk in aid of a good cause to get in touch.

He said: "I want diversity and models in a range of ages and sizes. You don’t need any experience”

Runway Idol is searching for models to participate in their 2021 charity fashion show at Hillsborough Stadium

A total of three auditions are set to be held at Ecclesall Road bar Kettle Black starting from July 4.

Participating models will be asked to sport clothing donated by a number of local and national firms including In The Style and Diesel.

James says Runway Idol has previously raised £10,000 through its fashion shows in 2018 and 2019.

Last year’s show, which was due to be held in July 2020, was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

James has worked in events for six years, has won four awards, been invited to Buckingham Palace and Westminster and raised an impressive £60,000 for charity.

Tickets cost £10, and anyone interested in modelling or buying a ticket should get in touch by emailing: [email protected]
